News: Avilan picked up the win Saturday, working 1.2 shutout innings and allowing just one hit in an 11-inning victory over the Braves.
Impact: He's been solid for the Braves in middle relief so far, and Avilan now sports a 2.50 ERA and 12:4 K:BB in 18 innings. Barring a major shakeup in the bullpen, however, the occasional vultured win is probably the extent of his fantasy value.

News: Avilan gave up a bunt single but recorded the final out of the seventh inning Wednesday to earn his second hold of the young season.
Impact: James Russell was released and Josh Outman went down with a shoulder injury, leaving Avilan to serve as the top lefty out of the Braves' bullpen to start the year. Avilan filled that role in 2013 and finished third in the NL in holds with 27, but struggled last season to a 4.57 ERA and 1.57 WHIP. His opponents' BABIP was up at .317 in 2014 (career .256), but his xFIP was just two points lower than his ERA.
